Truly sad, prayers for his family.
I just read this article a couple of months ago. Seau's death makes an eerie scenario/situation even more so.
Not that I speak from personal playing experience, but when I talk to former pro athletes one thing I'm always interested in hearing is how they dealt with walking away from the game, whether it be football baseball basketball etc.
Some guys transition well, but there are others that react like one of us would if you took our closest family member. Regardless of how successful you were or how much money you made, depression can affect anyone.
Obviously we don't know the details of this particular situation yet, but if it's indeed a suicide how absolutely sad and unnecessary. Prayers sent.
If you dreamed you were a sleep and you woke up, would you be awake?
So many are not prepared for any kind of life beyond football...So sad.

A permanent fix for a temporary problem!!!
Saw a tweet that said he's number 8 from that team.
I'm not going to hijack this thread, but "some" of the comments at the bottom of this link are pathetic and disheartening at best. That is all I will say about that. Prayers sent to his family, very unfortunate that he couldn't find peace after football.

Unbelievable!! He was truly one of the all-time greats. Very sad to hear this. Prayers going out to all of his family and friends.
That story is like a final destination movie plot.... Did you read about the guy that was struck by lightening? He was struck once, people started performing CPR, then lightening struck him again. They say lightening never strikes the same place twice, I guess it does if you were on the '94 charger team......
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
